You may feel that what you’re experiencing isn’t serious enough to get help or feel unsure about the kind of support that psychotherapy can offer. But anyone can benefit from becoming more aware of how they see the world and why. Sometimes ‘psychotherapy’ and ‘psychotherapeutic counselling’, are called ‘talking therapies’. For the most part, this is because they involve talking about an emotional difficulty with a trained therapist. That might be anything from grief to anxiety, relationship difficulties to addiction (UKCP).
Life coaching is the process of helping someone find the path between where they are now and where they want to be. It is about setting and achieving goals in many areas of life including business, health and wellbeing, career, relationships and work-life balance. It can be as broad as wanting to find what will make you happier or as specific as wanting to start a new job. A life coach uses insightful questioning to help their clients identify the goals they want to achieve, recognise their current circumstances, consider all the options open to them and choose which actions they will take within a defined timeframe.
